Regular 7pm Meeting, July 8th:

We are recruiting for participation in the annual American Liver Foundation Liver Life Walk with our "Liver Lifers" walk team on September 20, 2015. We are working with the state Dept. of Health, Hepatitis Coordinator to improve partnering and will update members on advancements in those activities. Our 15th Annual LiverFest has been planned for next Sunday, from 1pm - 3pm at Norton Park, Plainville; join us to finalize details.

  • September 9, 2015 meeting: Dr. Wu will speak to the group on Currently available treatment for HCV. This month, we plan to open our annual nominations for 2016 Facilitator(s) December 2015 vote.
  • October 15, 2015 meeting: Preparing for the fall and Halloween, we will discuss the health impact of the foods and sweets we eat. We will continue taking nominations for 2016 Facilitator(s) and discuss how we want the group to proceed going forward in these times of successful standard-of-care treatments.
  • November 11, 2015 meeting: With the holidays upon us and in the spirit of healthy living, especially having HCV, we will expand last month's discussions about what we eat with how we exercise. Also, 2016 Facilitator(s) nominations continue.
